New Delhi:  The Delhi government plans to provide 90 per cent reservation for students from the national capital in the 12 Delhi University colleges it funds, Higher Education Minister AK Walia said on Tuesday.

The government will send the recommendation to the Delhi University and to the Home Ministry, he added.

He also said that it had been decided that in colleges where the Delhi government provides 50 per cent grant for capital works and 5 per cent as recurring grant, 50 per cent reservation would be provided to local students.

Mr Walia said for these two categories, only those students from Delhi would be selected who would have cleared the class 12 examination from schools located in the national capital.

Though there is no reliable data available, it is estimated that nearly 17,000 students from Delhi are studying in these colleges.

Once the recommendations are accepted, it will provide additional seats to about 19,000 students from Delhi.
